Distribution of phaeopigments in the Arabian Sea off Mangalore

K. Manjappa, T.R.C. Gupta


Seasonal and temporal variations in the concentration of phaeopigments at 100 and 10% light depth at six selected stations in the Arabian Sea off Mangalore (West Coast of India) have been studied. The phaeopigments ranged between traces and 29.8 mg/m3. Fairly high concentrations of this pigment was encountered at 100 and 10% light depths during a major part of investigation. These values coincided with the variations of other chlorophyll pigments like chl. a, b, c and carotenoids
